I thought I'd start a new weekly feature - the best and worst Pinterest pins of the week. After all, I spend so much time on Pinterest for work, surrounded by pins day after day. Sometimes I feel like the pins are my co-workers. Like that one work friend who notices you cut your hair or are wearing unusually big pearl earrings. So here it goes... my picks for the best and worst pin of the week.
Okay, okay. I know it looks like a poster you'd find at a 5th grade Scholastic book fair, way in the back with the stacks of "Sixteen and Dying," just one of many supremely depressing books by Lurlene McDaniel. But I'd love to imagine we live in a world where one stuffed bear would be able to put his arm around another bear after a particularly long and stressful day of tea parties and cuddling (gosh, humans are so needy!!). And the not-so-perfect font and fuzzy graphics makes it all the more real!
This gets my "worst" vote because 1) It reminds me I haven't exercised, which really is the worst kind of reminder because usually you're on the couch when it happens. And at that point it's too late to do anything except eat more pickles from the jar sitting next to you. 2) How dare this pin look down on me for complaining about being forced to move in rhythm with music!! You try to walk on a treadmill and not dance to Rihanna's "We Found Love." It simply can't be done! 3) I've assumed this pin is referencing working out. But it could just as easily apply to eating an especially chewy bagel, zipping a winter coat over a bulky sweater vest or consuming a recommended dose of Robitussin. So I object to it on a clarity level. 4) There's no apostrophe in the "its" on the last line. Who's sweaty now, little pin?!
Well there you have it. Next week I'll try this roundup again, this time with a hearty (get it?) Thanksgiving theme. Don't forget to share your best and worst picks in the comments below!
